Darius LaVar Miles (born October 9, 1981 in Belleville, Illinois) is an American professional basketball player for the NBA's Portland Trail Blazers.
Miles attended East St. Louis High School, and, after failing to receive a qualifying SAT score to attend St. John's University, entered the 2000 NBA Draft and was selected by the Los Angeles Clippers as the 3rd overall pick; at the time this was the highest that a player entering the NBA directly from high school had been drafted.
Darius has also played for the Cleveland Cavaliers and more recently the Portland Trail Blazers.
During the 2004-05 season, Miles made headlines after a confrontation with then-coach Maurice Cheeks in which he reportedly insulted him with racial slurs and remarked he did not care if the team were to lose the next 30 games since Cheeks was going to be fired anyway. This led to his suspension of twenty-two games. Miles has been criticized for having tremendous talent, but a questionable work-ethic.
The Perfect Score is a teen comedy film released in 2004 and directed by Brian Robbins. The film stars Chris Evans, Bryan Greenberg, Scarlett Johansson, Erika Christensen, Darius Miles and Leonardo Nam.
The film focuses on a group of six high school students whose futures will be jeopardized if they fail the upcoming SAT exam. They conspire together to break into a building and steal the answers to the exam so they can all get perfect scores. The film deals with one’s future, morality, individuality and feelings.
The film has similarities to other high school movies, including The Breakfast Club and Dazed and Confused, which are often referenced throughout the film. However, the film was panned by most critics and performed quite poorly at the box office, losing out to the dance film You Got Served.
